Description
The collection consists of files regarding the planning and construction of the Pepperdine University campus in Malibu, between 1968 and 1999. Materials consist of master plan files, maps, correspondence, architectural plans, drawings, and photographs associated with the construction of campus buildings and landscaped areas.
Background
In 1969, the Rindge and Adamson family gave Pepperdine 138 acres of land in the Santa Monica Mountains. Subsequently, other gifts and purchases of adjoining parcels increased the size of the campus to 650 acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean. In February of 1970, Ronald Reagan, architect William Pereira, and Pepperdine administrators announced plans for the new campus and launched the $63-million fund campaign to finance it and set up an endowment.
